If you want solid performance in the audible frequency range and can compromise on subsonic depths, PSA XV15 and HSU VTF-15H are worth an audition in your price range.
Thanks Brave, this was more of a Rhetorical question for ShadyJ, it was designed to put him in a Catch 22 where he would be unable to answer the question.
AVR: Yamaha RXV-375
Display: Panasonic TH-50PC77U
LCR: Hsu HB1.2 HC1.2
Sub: (2) PSA XV15se
Blu Ray: Sony BDP-S5100
Who cares about the diameter of the woofer? End performance is all that matters. But if you want two 15"s under $800 that are better than the XV15, I would go for either the Dayton Titanic 4 15" kit or two PA-150s which can be had for $800 if you make that offer.
Have a 20 x 17 media room. Have 7.1 in wall Polk Audio RC85i's, for all 7 Speakers, including center. Anyway, upgraded my FRONT 3 speakers with a Pair of EMP TEK Towers and their largest Center that will be here next week. I almost spent a fortune on speakers, but these will work fine.
I am looking for a sub for my Media Room, the guy at Rythmik suggested the FV15HP. I was also looking at HSU, SVS, etc. I am also upgrading my Projector to an Epson 6030UB. I also just got a Denon AVR-X200 Receiver, so that is what will be running everything, hope it is Good enough for the sub and speakers!
Anyway, please look at my Media Room. Is the FV15HP too big for that room? Is it better to get 2 subs, like a pair of PB2000 or the HSU MK4's, or would the Rythmik FV15HP be better?
I am going round and round with all this sub stuff. I just want my sub to sound clean and TIGHT, have a articulate Thud vs. a flabby whooooooooooooooooooooooooooshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
Any advice appreciate. Brave, I take it all back. I'd marry you in a heartbeat. You would just have to sleep outside in a tent. Kidding, kidding.
OK, let’s get to it. here are the Pics! (Currently have a Polk Audio PSW1000, there was a run of Polk’s with BAD amps. Some guy on Ebay bought pallets of them, replaced the amp with a Bash Audio Amp. So, I never know exactly what a true PSW1000 sounds like. However, this one I have grown to hate. It just rattles and is NOT tight and clean.
I have NO IDEA where to place my Sob in that room. I will have to figure it out. The PSW 1000 pictured is just where it is convenient.
Also on a side note. JUST got a Samsung 8000 3D TV Hung above firerplace and need a sub for that room too. Wanted something maybe smaller. I think the FV15HP would be too big and the wife would hate it? Maybe looking at a PB2000 or a HSU MK4, or whatever else you guys want to recommend.
Sub will be in Back Left Corner of room. if sitting on couch behind left shoulder. That's where power and sub connection is located. if that's NOT ideal, I can always go wireless.
Pictures of that room:
To verify the results of your placement, you need a calibrated mic to be used with REW to measure your room response.
PS: If you are planning to keep your in-wall polks, did you know you can be spray paint them so that they match your wall color.
